While sitting at a drying up pan on an overcast dam outside of Lephalale I was photographing some water birds foraging when I suddenly noticed the spoonbills approaching. I quickly lifted the camera and started shooting hoping the setting would be sufficient as there was certainly no time to setup the camera. The image was simply converted to B&W for more dramatic effect and to stand out in the drag flat light conditions. - By Craig Gissing, Centurion. Nikon D500, Nikon 200 - 500mm.
